Work was temporarily halted at Seven-Up Bottling Company Plc headquarters in Lagos on Monday as Pepsi Football Ambassador Victor Moses stopped over to thank the management and staff of the company for their support.
As the news spread round that Moses was inside the premises, staffers left their offices to catch a glimpse of the Pepsi ambassador who brought joy to over 160 million Nigerians by playing a key role in the Super Eagles’ success at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
Moses was also the arrowhead in Pepsi’s theme campaign for the AFCON tagged ‘Our Nation, Our Pride’.
Moses, who was conducted round different offices by the Head of Marketing of the company Mr. Norden Thurston, visited the Chairman, Mr. Faysal El Khalil and Managing Director, Mr. Sunil Sawhney among others.
Mr. El Khalil congratulated Moses for his performance during the AFCON tournament, saying Pepsi was proud to be associated with him.
The chairman said Pepsi, through the Pepsi Football Academy, has been discovering and nurturing young Nigerian talents in football for over 20 years, including giving them full scholarships to study and play in top high schools in the United Kingdom.
